Treatments & Price: €60
In a typical acupuncture session I may use many different treatment types, however the fee is still the same.
Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin – or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points – to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of the herb 'Mugwort' over points on the body to facilitate healing.
Cupping is where glass cups are placed on the body in a way which creates therapeutic suction.
It is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles as a means of stimulating the acupoints.
